Overview

For those suffering with schizophrenia, the idea of returning to a "full participation in life" seems like nothing more than a far-off fantasy. Yet, many people with schizophrenia -- as well as those who love them -- are seeing positive results using the alternative therapies introduced in this book. The truth is, schizophrenia does not have to turn your life upside down; you can recover from this illness, be symptom-free, and take back your life. The Natural Medicine Guide to Schizophrenia offers invaluable information on ten ground-breaking therapies that have been shown to reduce the need for anti-psychotic medication. Drawing on the cutting-edge approaches of nine leading healthcare practitioners, health journalist Stephanie Marohn shows how alternative therapies have successfully reversed, reduced, and even cured the disease in many cases. Therapies discussed include orthomolecular psychiatry, biochemical medicine, homeopathy, and osteopathy. Marohn also documents the 21 factors that can trigger or worsen schizophrenia and provides an "action plan" to reduce these factors in your daily life. Marohn addresses the many falsehoods surrounding this mysterious disease and gives those suffering with schizophrenia a reason to hope for recovery. Hope that comes from real people who share their stories within these pages -- the onset of their schizophrenia, their history with anti-psychotics, and their astonishing successes with natural medicine.

    Schizophrenia treatment beyond drugs

    This book should be required reading for anyone who is dubious about the current medications only approach to treating schizophrenia. In previous reviews of this book I used the word "cured" in reference to my son. Since then he has had a relapse but is once again back on path. More people should regularly use the word "cure" in reference to a schizophrenia outcome. A cure simply means that someone with an illness has become healthy again or it can be the solution to a problem. The difference is that now I am taking a longer term view than I once held but I am not giving up this book! I continue to refer to it while picking off the therapies that it advises. My son has done Family Constellation Therapy (terrific!), cranial massage (very useful), vitamin supplements (they work) and has undergone some interesting shamanic based therapies that I feel are key to resolving the underlying tensions. Stephanie Marohn's book has led me down the path of being a holistic believer. She has helped me to see medical problems in a way that I didn't see them before. Gary Craig, founder of Emotional Freedom Technique, believes that 85% of all illnesses are of a psychological origin. This is a powerful concept that you can use to your advantage. Once you go holistic, you equip yourself better to withstand the ups and downs that are associated with recovery and you dig deeper into yourself to find solutions.
